So it's weird. I played this on my gaming laptop and had no issues running my PS4 controller. It just doesn't work on my desktop. Even though I played the beta on my desktop and my controller had no issues before.

This works however it makes my center jump to the feet at random times making me lose some fights or not even have a chance to correct it when it happens. Any clue as to why?
